I got my grandmother's (as best as I can tell, 1900 Singer model 28) treadle machine. Her name is Elizabeth and her serial # is N1516432. Her decals are pretty much shot-she's a sphinx- and her paint is pitted on the bed. Should I try to get new decals, sand her off and put a coat of black paint on her, or should I paint her a pretty color and paint her with beautiful roses???? I'm planning on using her and I'm not interested in her value. What do y'all think?
